The point of this thread is to make up what if scenarios for Saturday Morning cartoon blocks and channels. Example:

In 2001, after losing the rights to the previous Fox Kids library to Disney, Fox teams up with 4Kids Entertainment to create FoxBox, a 4-hour block programmed by 4Kids, to replace it. It premiered in 2002. In late 2004, plans to relaunch FoxBox as "4Kids TV" are scrapped when DiC Entertainment cancels their current syndication deal in order to supply FoxBox with programming- in particular, E/I content. FoxBox's relaunch instead occurs with the FoxBox name intact on January 22, 2005, expanding FoxBox to a six-hour block on both Saturdays and Sundays, from 7 AM to 1 PM. The first hour and a half of programming of both blocks consists of E/I programming primarily from DiC's library, while the remaining four and a half hours being a mixture of programs from both 4Kids and DiC's library. Due to this, when CBS split from Viacom in late 2005, and Nickelodeon stopped programming for the block in 2006, programming for the CBS block went to Corus Entertainment-owned Nelvana, who had previously programmed CBS's Kidshow block in the late 90s. Qubo is also affected, as Nelvana was one of the original distributors for the Qubo block. In 2008, Cookie Jar Group acquired DiC Entertainment, and their programming was added to the block, including Dark Oracle and MagiNation. In 2011, 4Kids filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and the rights of multiple shows- and their share in the FoxBox block- was transferred to Saban Brands. In 2012, FoxBox was relaunched again, with Saban shows such as Power Rangers added to the lineup. On September 6, 2014, FoxBox is shut down, and is replaced the following week by Steve Rotfeld Productions's Xploration Station, an E/I-exclusive block oriented at teenagers.
